Attention Span (Mumbai)

As commandos enter the Jewish Center, shown for a couple of moments on both BBC and CNN at the top of the hour, attention has moved away on both networks, on the BBC to the Thai airports (a story worth some coverage), on CNN to Christina Applegate's breasts (also a somewhat worthy story).

When I could not sleep through last night and absorbed myself in news coverage, CNN did not break away, but the BBC had to include several sections of their news coverage explaining the implications of the Mumbai attacks for the England-India cricket tests matches underway in India.

Culture. Priorities. I suspect the Indians would understand the BBC's.
